The Economic Development Authority has the power to provide financial grants or incentives to assist new and existing businesses in the City of Fredericksburg in order to foster and stimulate development. The City’s JumpStart! Plan outlines the specific types of development that would best serve the City’s economic prosperity, and the EDA has created criteria for its grants that focus specifically on these JumpStart! recommendations.
The funding for these grants is limited and eligible applicants must meet the criteria as set forth in the EDA JumpStart! Grant Criteria. The Economic Development Authority has developed criteria to ensure that grants of financial assistance actually achieve its stated purposes and direct the Authority’s limited funds to projects and activities that provide the greatest anticipated return on the funds “invested”.
Prior to applying grant applicants are required to meet with the City's Department of Economic Development and Tourism.
Applications are accepted: March 1st, June 1st, September 1st and December 1st.
Applicant is required to be in compliance with City of Fredericksburg taxes, permits, fees and regulations prior to applying.
